Here’s what users have said about the Smith & Wollensky:
I had an amazing dining experience in Vegas. The bacon appetizer was incredibly tender and delicious, while the coffee & cocoa rubbed filet was also great. However, the ancho butter didn’t complement the dish well. To finish off, the huge piece of chocolate cake was enough to serve three people with leftovers. Overall, it was a fantastic experience that never disappoints.
The food at Smith and Wollensky in the Venetian hotel was good, but unfortunately, the service left much to be desired. Despite having a reservation, we weren’t seated until 25 minutes past our scheduled time. When we asked if we could transfer our drinks from the bar to the table, both the bartender and the host insisted that we close out at the bar, even though one of our guests was paying for the entire meal. Throughout the evening, it felt like our waiter wasn’t giving us much attention. We had to repeatedly ask for water refills from other servers and server assistants. Pre-bussing wasn’t done on our table, resulting in dirty plates and empty glasses piling up. It got so bad that I had to stack up the plates myself to make some space. Only right before our main course arrived did they finally clear the empty plates. Despite ordering a lot of wine, we noticed two extra full bottles of chardonnay open at the end of the meal, even though we had also ordered a bottle of port and a bottle of ice wine for dessert. During our dinner, we observed several servers, including ours, standing at the bar laughing and having a good time instead of attending to us.
We enjoyed our dinner at this restaurant towards the end of our stay at the Venetian Hotel. The upstairs seating offered a pleasant view of the ceiling of St. Mark’s Square and was quieter compared to the ones right on the square. Our meal started with the scallop appetizer, which was perfectly cooked, although the sauce didn’t add much to the flavor. My husband ordered the Caesar salad, which had a large portion but the dressing was mediocre. However, the highlight of our dining experience was the signature filet and Wagu filet, both cooked to perfection and incredibly delicious. For dessert, we indulged in the mile high chocolate cake, which was moist and not overly sweet. It was so generously sized that we enjoyed it for dessert for another two days. Overall, the steaks alone made the visit worthwhile.
